This morning driving to work I heard this song and this distant memory permeated my thoughts - hence this post!
It was 1997 and I was in my early twenties. I was living the life of a twenty year old in sunny, beautiful San Diego and I had the two best-est friends a girl could ever need, want, have (I still have them).
Because I was worldly and adventurous, I convinced the girls that we needed to go on a road trip – to Chico, CA. I had some friends who went to Chico State and I thought they needed a visit………….the girls were inn!
So early one Fall Friday morning, we piled into Heather’s ford and drove 15 hours.........yes 15 hours, to Chico. The road trip was spine-tingling - good. We bonded over country music and forever cemented our friendships. We got lost a couple times on some NorCal back country roads, but it was OK, all was well because we had each other, Tim McGraw and a map!
We stayed in a Frat type house with our friends, who just happend to be BOYS and although you had to wear your flip flops in the shower and hover over the toilets – We had a blast!!!!
